Since 2000, former Hurricanes linebackers have amassed 970 total tackles for the Panthers. As a former member of the U and native of Coral Gables, Fla., Perryman will look to add to that number as he steps into shoes once held by Dan Morgan and Jon Beason.

Beason even wore No. 52, the same one Perryman wore in six years with the Chargers. Beason spoke to The Athletic about what he sees in Perryman:

“I’m a little bit taller,” said Beason, who is just a shade under 6-1. “But he’s way more explosive than I ever was. When he hits you, he comes out of his shoes, through his hips. I mean, he knocks people back. He’s old school. He actually — this game, the way it’s officiated now, he can’t really play in it. He’s a hitter.”
